5 Skillshare Classes For Killer Street Photography in 2016

I can honestly say that Skillshare changed the way I shoot.

I was awarded a Skillshare scholarship in 2015, and after watching classes by Trashhand and some of my other Instagram heroes, I was inspired.

The classes are all in a video format, and take you behind the scenes and into the minds of the teachers.

While I have a particular style, I learned how to take it to the next level from some teachers, while learning some fundamentals from others.

Whether you’re a rookie or a pro, you’re bound to learn from these classes.

Skillshare is a paid membership learning portal, at a reasonable $10 per month or only $8 per month if you pay for a year upfront. For that price, you can enroll in as many classes as you like.

The following classes are the ones that I got the most value from.
